Come for the WODs. Stay for the people.
To have a good CrossFit gym you need equipment, space, knowledgeable coaches, and solid programming. But what makes it go from good to great is an awesome community, and CFM has that in spades.
Many of you know I bounced around to several boxes in Atlanta before landing here last June. In that time, I never found one that even came close to being as good a fit as CFM. Don’t get me wrong, they weren’t bad gyms. I just never felt such an emphasis on community at any of them the way I did when I first walked through the doors at CFM.
Between the constant stream of awesome events to the no-judgement atmosphere, I couldn’t be more honored or happier to call myself a part of the CFM community.
So in the spirit of awesome events, don’t forget to sign up for the upcoming Field Day to celebrate CrossFit Midtown’s 1st birthday. Invite your friends, CrossFitters or not, and come on out to Piedmont Park for some good old-fashioned games, the likes of which you probably haven’t played since middle school.
Not only do you get to compete and have a blast with the crazy awesome CFM community, but you also get to be a part of giving back since all the proceeds benefit Strong4Life! What’s not to like?
Oh, and go ahead and clear your schedule for the ENTIRE day on May 11th because after the Field Day is the Anniversary Party. And after that party is the after-party…if history is any indication.
See you there!
AND THIS JUST IN: The first prizes for winning field day teams have been confirmed… from our friends at RiRa AND lululemon athletica! Also confirmed: there will definitely be an after-party after the Anniversary Party.
CFM is closed Easter Sunday
No Open Gym this Sunday… we’ll be open as regularly scheduled all other days this & next week.
